I got this week’s clue finished with some time to spare!

Things are getting busy with Christmas just around the corner and we have guests visiting.  I had to break this clue into manageable amounts to sew each day but it actually went very fast.

So there it is – three weeks and three clues finished!

Frolic Mystery Quilt Week 2

I was so happy that this week’s clue was easy again!

I just wanted to post an update on my progress on this year’s Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt from her Quiltville blog.

I have the first 2 clues finished but I have guests coming next week so it might get harder to keep up.  I’m going to do the best I can!

It’s Mystery Quilt time again!!

I said I wasn’t going to do it again but when Bonnie Hunter came out with the colors for this year’s Quiltville mystery quilt, I fell in love.  By the way, this year’s quilt is called “Frolic”.

I begged my mom to pop over to Lowes and pick up the paint chips for this year’s colors – and then please, mail them to me. (Thanks Mom!)

Then I went through my stash to see if I had anything in those colors.

I had a lot of the green, which is called Parakeet and a little bit of everything else.  Our arts & crafts store on base was having a big sale so I was able to pick up some more fabrics of the other colors.  I’m not sure if I have enough for the whole quilt but I have enough to get started.

The first clue came out the day after Thanksgiving and I was very thankful that she made it an easy clue to start with!

It’s just some little 4 patch blocks and I’m almost finished with those.

As you can see, I’m also still working on my Pinwheel Fancy quilt blocks and mixing them in there as leaders and enders.

I’m just a little over halfway done with this and running out of room on my design wall!  I’m not sure what I’m going to do when I run out of room.  I’ll probably just stack them up and then lay them all out on the floor.  I like having them up here so I can make sure to switch up the fabrics as I’m sewing them.  I think as long as I lay everything out before I sew them together, I’ll get a nice mix of fabrics.

I can’t wait until Friday when the next mystery quilt clue comes out!
